Argentina Fine Wine Dinner at the Fulham Wine Rooms
Our next food and wine dinner is an Argentinean Feast. We have teamed up with Ruta 40 who deal exclusively in small family-owned boutique wineries from the Mendoza and Salta provinces. This is a wonderful opportunity to put this philosophy to the test and sample a selection of premium and fine Argentinian wine ranging from £12 to £30 a bottle and matching it with a wonderful 3-course dinner at the excellent Fulham Wine Rooms.
Argentinean Fine Wine: Ruta-40
The energetic Christian Rothhardt is the brainchild behind Ruta-40 who has driven over long 5,000 miles in Argentina sourcing the finest wine for his portfolio. Indeed this gave birth to the company name, Ruta-40, the name of the longest road in Argentina. To even be considered for Ruta-40 the bodega (winery) must be family-owned and not exceed a production over 300,000 bottles annually (very small!) - this is boutique production. From Argentine classic grape varieties such as Malbec and Torrontes to unusual ones such as Nebbiolo andTempranillo there is a wide diversity to be found within Ruta-40.
The evening will begin at 6:30pm with a reception wine before we sit down with a delicious starter and the rose. Expect a hearty dish of beef with some full-bodied reds before finishing with the big guns with a selection of cheese. This is a real winter warmer wine dinner perfect to heat up your January!
